3/2: Second Public Hearing: Calfee Training School Adaptive Reuse Project

The Town of Pulaski will hold a public hearing on March 2, 2021 at 7pm to solicit public input on a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) proposal for the adaptive reuse of the Calfee Training School at 1 Corbin-Harmon Dr. (formerly Magnox Dr.). The adaptive reuse project will include the retrofitting of the historic school into a community and cultural center that will house a museum, childcare center, commercial kitchen, computer lab, event and office space, outdoor playspaces and a half basketball court. A detailed fact sheet, including information about how many low to moderate income residents are likely to benefit, will be presented for comment. Residents will also be given a chance to comment on the Town of Pulaski’s past use of CDBG funds.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only 10 persons are allowed in the chambers at a time. In result, citizens will not be able to attend the hearing in-person. Citizens may view the hearing via Facebook live on the Town of Pulaski Facebook page. All persons desiring to comment on the grant proposal should submit their remarks to Jill Williams, Calfee Community & Cultural Center Executive Director, by 5:00pm on Tuesday, March 2, 2021, to 42 First Street, NW/PO Box 660 Pulaski, VA or via email to jill@calfeeccc.org. Persons may also comment via Facebook live.

A copy of the fact sheet and environmental review report are available for public review in the Engineering Office, Pulaski Municipal Building, 42 First Street, NW from 8:30am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.
